Agcapita Farmland Fund IV Launches April 18th 2013

  1. 1. Agcapita Partners is pleased to announce that Agcapita Farmland Fund IV willopen to investors on April 18thwith a $20 million offering.FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, ATTENTION INVESTMENT EDITORS – April 2, 2013 -CalgaryAgcapita Partners is pleased to announce that Agcapita Farmland Fund IV willopen to investors on April 18thwith a $20 million offering.Agcapita is the onlyfarmland investment fund eligible for Registered Retirement Savings Plans(“RRSP”).Stephen Johnston, founder of Agcapita reports that "Farmland continues toappreciate as we predicted when we launched our first fund in 2008. We believethat strong agriculture commodity prices and expansive monetary conditions aresupporting valuations globally but more interestingly, Saskatchewan appears tobe closing the price gap with its neighbors and generating even higher rates ofreturns than Canadian farmland investments in general. We believe this is ademonstration of a margin of safety factor in Saskatchewan farmland which wefind so compelling as investment managers. We continue our model of usingminimal to no leverage for acquisitions in keeping with a commitment to riskmitigation."Agcapita’s series of farmland funds continue to show great appeal toconservative investors concerned with inflation and the volatility of their existingpublic equity investments. Farmland has similar inflation hedging qualities to goldbut with an ongoing cash yield that gold lacks. Farmland returns exhibit lowvolatility and this combined with the high absolute returns from farmland equateto a favorable Sharpe ratio. Agcapita’s funds directly hold diversified portfolios offarmland in western Canada, and in particular in the highly price competitiveprovince of Saskatchewan. Investors are provided with the comfort of a directinvestment in farmland combined with a model of front-end loaded cash rents.Agcapita believes farmland is a safe investment, that supply is shrinking and thatunprecedented demand for "food, feed and fuel" will continue to move cropprices higher over the long-term. Agcapita is one of Canadas most experiencedfarmland fund managers, launching its first fund in Q1 2008.This news release may contain certain information that is forward looking and, byits nature, such forward-looking information is subject to important risks anduncertainties.
